This beautiful Queen Anne house in the heart of the historic town of Berkeley is the former home of vaccine pioneer Edward Jenner.

This is the house where Jenner, pioneer of vaccination against smallpox, lived and told the world about his work. Less than 200 years later, smallpox had been eradicated, with countless lives saved in the process.

Inside the house, exhibitions tell the story of Jenner's life and trace the impact of his work today. The garden contains the rustic Temple of Vaccinia, historic grape vines, and a Physic Garden.
